After today’s formation, we’ll be taking a field trip to…the Dana Gymnasium! Here, we’ll have plenty of floor space (and traction) to get some speed and agility work in for the first time this semester. We completed a 1 mile run earlier this month; last lesson we knocked out 4x400m runs (plus a few push-ups and squats, wink wink), and today we’ll be rocking out some super-short distance runs – but at 100% intensity aka an all out sprint. One way we can work to improve our speed and our agility (2 of the 10 overall components of fitness) is through a shuttle run, which is an event used in many different fitness assessments (NFL Combine, military and law enforcement physical fitness tests, etc) and that can be a lot of fun when running with/against your fellow athletes. Each shuttle run today will be at a total distance of 50 meters.
